IOSCO 48th Annual Meeting
Published on 19-Jun-2023
The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) concluded its 48th Annual Meeting, this week. The meeting was hosted by the Securities and Exchange Commission of Thailand, in Bangkok.
The financial supervisors that are members of IOSCO regulate more than 95% of the world’s financial markets across 130 jurisdictions. The IOSCO Annual Meeting serves as a platform for IOSCO members to convene, discuss market developments, share knowledge, foster collaboration, and agree on common positions.
The meetings of the IOSCO Board and other IOSCO committees have been the occasion to monitor recent market developments and to highlight the work realized in relation to the three fundamental priorities identified during previous Annual Meeting in Marrakech in October 2022. These include crypto assets, sustainable finance and financial stability. These meetings have also illustrated IOSCO’s inclusive approach to all our members from different geographies, of different sizes and of different stages of development. All IOSCO members are connected through the thread of our shared goals of investor protection, market integrity and financial stability.
At the IOSCO Board and the different Committees including the Annual General Meeting of IOSCO, the Presidents’ Committee, 381 delegates discussed diverse subjects such as sustainable finance, private finance, liquidity risk management, CCP margin requirements, decentralized finance, leveraged loans and benchmarks.
Market Developments and Capacity Building in emerging markets were key items for discussion where IOSCO will be moving forward with concrete measures. IOSCO will be seeking to harness the capabilities within the Growth and Emerging Markets Committee, regional committees, and the Affiliate Members Consultative Committee to deliver these goals.
